I like the video format comparison table on this page:
http://www.uwasa.fi/~f76998/video/conversion/

"Fuzziness" can happen anywhere - out of focus original shots, bad prints, out of focus telecine, low resolution videotape format, multiple generations, low res digital capture, format conversion . . . I recall reading that the archive transfers film to Beta SP then digitizes. Beta SP is better than anything a consumer is likely to see, but there can still be more info in a 16mm frame than it can capture. Anyway, I too would like to see resolution and bitrate info for the mpeg2 files, and I'd love to see "American Look" re-captured at 720x480!
